    Great video!! Very informative for my first time setting up and using my Silhouette.

    Terri you are amazing! I wish I had this video two years ago. I would have been making things everyday, instead of wondering what to do. I have purchased all your courses. Thank you for taking the time to do these classes. You are a busy and talented lady. Cannot wait to see what is next.

    Great video! I will certainly make this project for a gift.

    You take the fear out of using the Cameo for the first time. Now, off I go to create my first project. :-)

    Very informative and helpful! Thank you! :-)

    Great video! It takes a lot of the fear out of using the Cameo. I should have watched it sooner!

    I really enjoyed the video. Wish I had been able to view this when I first took my Silhouette out of the box!

    What a good video! Very informative and covers all the beginner questions. Terri, thanks so much for all your hard work. Very well done! I know a couple of people that just got a Silhouette for Christmas. I will be recommending this class.

    Great vid Terri!! Cheers, Will

    I feel better then I did before I took the class. I still have a lot of questions but I do feel like I could cut something and know what I was doing. I think tomorrow I am going to do a test run.

    Very informative video.

    Thank you, good information

    Loved the course. My only problem was the sound, sometimes it was so low on the recording end that I could not turn it up anywhere and was unable to hear some things. Also, zoomed in too much a couple times and could not see where you were clicking. Besides those two glitches I loved it! Thank you!

    This was great! I do not feel so lost now!

    Wonderful!

    This was so helpful in getting started as I am a first time "crafter"! Thank you!

    I loved all the information. I appreciate I can go back and watch again as I am learning about how to use my Cameo 2. On the 2nd video I had a hard time hearing even with my headphones and volume all the way up. Idk if I had something wrong but I can go back later and maybe watching again. So informative. Thank you for the step-by-step directions
